New here & thought I'd share.
Opening day of 2010 season.
08 Moab
Slick Trick 125
Gold Tip
25 yard shot
He took two big hops, stood there wondering what was going. His head slumped and then he fell over.
First time I ever watched one drop like that.

ask me about this shot.

Well, at least the deer's dead, but how did you do a shot like that?!?!:eek:

When I shot this deer it left a "MASSIVE" blood trail. In ohio we get these archery doe tags for 15$ but they expire after 2 months from the start of archery season. I was close to the expiration on my last tag..... That morning that deer walked right beneath me and was quartered away hard. Thus shrinking my vital shot. At 30 yards the deer finaly stopped and I made this shot. It bounced off its shoulder then went thru its throat and thru its mouth severing its jugular. It didnt live very long after that. I will probably catch some heat for this but the deer died as fast as a double lung. It tasted good because my family and I have already eaten the whole thing already.

Lord have mercy,

I figure it this way: the doe couldn't have hardly suffered, and it really doesn't matter (to a degree) on how it was killed.:cool: There are those who probably would tell you that you shouldn't have taken the shot, but then again, they weren't in your shoes and holding your bow.;)

My max range is 40 yards, I had no fear of the shot. I think in the heat of the moment I didn't realize how hard the deer was quartered. It worked to my favor.

10 days of archery season left in Ohio and one 24$ tag left

That's good. I haven't gotten a deer ever, but last season(2010) I passed up a shot because I wasn't comfortable with it.

Hopefully you can get him. I've discovered it's harder to find deer in the winter than the fall, but that could be my lack of experience.:rolleyes:

Since there is almost 2feet of snow here and much more coming. Most of the deer are yarding up. Which make them harder to find. But with the trail cams they help.

I know how the deer are moving by the stand I am hunting in the morn, I just don't know what time. I had a ground blind stole out on that property this year and don't want my trail cams lifted. I save all my trail cams for my hog bait sites any way. I am hunting over a food plot that they have hitting good.
